Connecticut-I am a seller of a Mobile Home. I have a valid

This answer was rated:

Connecticut-I am a seller of a Mobile Home. I have a valid signed Sales contract to purchase my mobile home through a realtor. The buyer was "rejected" by the mobile home park's Management company based on credit. They are a CASH buyer. The only contingency on the contract is provided they sell their home. Both closings are set on the same date, Oct. 31st (in just 20 days). Therefore, the buyer cannot give me 30 days to back out of the contract. I believe this is the BUYER'S problem to deal with the management company and are still legally and contractually liable to buy my home. Am I correct?

Ray :

Hi and welcome to JA. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am the expert that will be assisting you tonight.

Ray :

I would agree with you that the terms of the sales contract control.If the buyer has no out concerning park approval then they are in breach of the contract if they do not close on time.

Ray :

You may need a local lawyer to file such a suit or threaten such a lawsuit.If they bought this without any language about park approval then you are correct that it would be their problem under Connecticut law as a breach of the sales contract.

Customer:

So I should contact a Real Estate or Contract attorney on my behalf? It is a STICKY situation adding that the Realtor represents both me AND the buyer

Customer:

And she is a FRIEND

Ray :

I would use a real estate lawyer.You would advise them that if they do not close you intend to sue for breach of contract.I will get you lawyer referral here..
